Flying blind comes naturally

Superb sound quality

BeoSound 2 supports inexpensive SD cards of up to 2 GB in size, which means that each card will hold approximately 400 songs recorded at a quality level where you cannot hear the difference from a CD. Flash memory technology offers a means of storing music that has several advantages over hard disc drives, not least portability, lower power consumption, and greatly improved shock resistance. A fully charged battery allows up to 10 hours of uninterrupted music – either playing your pre-defined music lists or in Random mode.

BeoSound 2 Leather Case

Without compromising the intuitive one-touch control of BeoSound 2, of course.
Functional icon To many people, this is the essence of Bang & Olufsen: a modern design icon as well as a deeply functional music system. Perhaps you have just seen it in a movie or magazine, but you know that somehow you have always wanted one. It immediately catches the eye with its bold juxtaposition of strong lines and the random colours of the discs. Every player is unique, because every owner loads it with a different set of CDs. It is the perfect combination of individuality and icon; human and machine.
Watch your music come alive Like the kinetic sculpture it is, the BeoSound 9000 seems almost to be a living thing. It´s the speed of the CD clamper as it zips back and forth in random mode. The sheer fun of such an advanced piece of mechanical engineering that can go from ‘Hey Jude’ on the first CD to ‘When the music’s over’ on the sixth without a noticeable pause. The glass lid swings open via a silent electric motor, and when the design experience unfolds in time all dimensions of it can be truly appreciated. And only when you hear the sound does it all come together.
Intelligence is in the details The list of the ingenious solutions and practical details in BeoSound 9000 just goes on. It is hard to find anything that has not been thought of. Photoelectric sensors protect curious fingers from the accelerating clamper. The CDs come to rest the way you loaded them, so the text is never upside down, using patented Bang & Olufsen technology. And the hidden buttons and the display can be adjusted according to how you choose to hang or stand the system, so they are never upside down either. Naturally.
The BeoSound 9000 can be the musical heart of your BeoLink system in almost unlimited combinations. This versatile piece of equipment can even play music through your Bang & Olufsen hi-fi speakers in another room.
The six CDs give you hours of listening without having to go near the player, and you also get an excellent FM radio and the option to stream internet radio from your computer using BeoPort or BeoMedia 1. You can even plug in your BeoSound 2 or another portable music player. For the ultimate output, the natural option is to take advantage of the fully digital connection available with BeoLab 5.
Get an out-of living-room experience
We want you to believe that you are somewhere else. Right on the stage with Brünnhilde and Siegfried; in the recording studio during the Birth of the Cool; tumbling around the U-96 as the depth charges detonate. You are no longer in your living room. And you have completely forgotten about all the advanced technology that enables your BeoLab 5 speakers to erase themselves from the picture. Because it is not about the technology. It is about the experience.
Freedom to listen – freedom to move
You can move around a grand piano as much as you like, and the music will still move you. In contrast, a traditional stereo speaker set-up locks the listener in a ´sweet spot´ position of limited physical dimensions. If you move around, you lose out on the subtleties in the music because of the directionality of the speakers. This problem has been considered inevitable, but nonetheless a nuisance to those who want ease of living without compromising sound quality. Enter Acoustic Lens Technology exclusively from Bang & Olufsen, and feel free to sit anywhere you like. You will always be in the right place. Problem solved.
Absolute power without corruption
How do you fit a full symphony orchestra between the sofa and the easy chair? The BeoLab 5 may not appear small compared with other Bang & Olufsen loudspeakers, but its physical size is in fact negligible when compared to the sound it delivers. This is where the 2500 watts of digital amplification comes in. With these power reserves, we can coax a bigger, clearer, more realistic and potentially much louder sound out of something relatively small. In simple terms, the sky is the limit.
It listens and learns
The acoustic properties of your listening room play a very important role in the quality of the sound from high-end speakers – as do their placement relative to walls and furniture. But who wants to install new walls and floors or change seating arrangements just to get the most from their speakers? Luckily, digital technology from Bang & Olufsen known as Adaptive Bass Control will listen and analyse "the sound of the room" and tailor the speakers´ performance accordingly. With BeoLab 5, it is as easy as pressing a button on top of one of the speakers. The process takes just two minutes and can be repeated easily – in case you move your speakers or install new floors because you want to.
